Like many movies filmed in Rhode Island, Tax Day has gotten mixed reviews from its audience. While half the room will agree that Tax Day is the greatest "Art" movie to come out of Rhode Island, the other half of the room will agree to walk out of the room and watch a different movie.
Tax Day is an independent movie that you need to view twice to get the hidden political message that director Laura Colella was trying to tell her audience. Film is one of the most amazing vehicles that the world can use to not only entertain its audience but to educate as well. Students around the world will tell you that the best teachers are the ones who entertain while they teach. "A spoon full of sugar helps the medicine go down." It is this reason that the film fails in its message to many of the people in the audience. The reason for this is the movie's lack of entertainment value compared to a movie with more action, comedy, better acting, etc.
Tax Day is a good movie, but is far from a great movie. Then again, like many pieces of art, the film is unique and stands alone in a genre of its own. Even though I am not a fan of this movie, I believe it is one of the best "Art" movies ever made in Rhode Island.
